Well, it looks like you right of center folks aren't such cold hearted bastards after all.

Har, har...of course, we knew that in your case from way back.

Feral cats are a huge issue out this way (preying on song birds and lizards), and adoption programs certainly need all the support they can get. Being a dog person (sorry, Dire, I could just as well feed a cat to snake...hmmm, saw that some bozo was arrested for trying that! oh, and JK!) it breaks my heart to see them fending for themselves (there too it seems cats do better in that respect, but we don't need the addt'l predators).

Yea Yea, just an old softie when it comes to animals. This, by the way, along with free will is God's other joke on humanity and that is dominion over the animals. I prefer to think of it as stewardship, even though I also prefer to think of cows as cheeeseburgers on the hoof.

In reality, I'm just a guy that's taken a couple of canines off the streets and out of harms way which has added to the quality of MY life. It's the volunteers that nurse and the people that foster these dogs that have the big hearts.

Well done and well said Earl. My family and I feel blessed to have our pound dog as part of the family.

One of my favorite motto's: Strive everyday to be the person your dog thinks you are.

That's more than enough to take some justified pride in...as Kipling would say, "never give your heart to a dog to tear"

That's it ,W.Tell ,Jerry's last message : "I tried ,you know ,for a very long time, but it was hurting too much,after all these years ,to keep seeing them so satisfied of themselves .So I quit,the music can go on without me ,as I got other trails to see ." And "never give your heart to the dogs to tear " said he , Jerry !
